Q May a superintendent at a failing school require staff members to reapply for their jobs for the 2014-2015 school year?

A No. Section 37-9-17 provides the procedure that must be followed with regard to school staff employment. These statutes do not provide for a re-application process. (Attorney General Opinion to Taplin, October 11, 2013) Also see another Opinion to Taplin dated October 11, 2013, giving the same answer to the same question relating to school principals.
